Overview

Overview

Geodesy deals with the measurement of the earth in global, regional and local scales. The geographic information in turn establishes the connection between the recorded data and their spatial reference, the processing with computer-aided methods and their presentation with digital geographic information systems. Geodesy and Geoinformation is an engineering science that works in an interdisciplinary manner and uses modern measurement techniques, analysis methods and communication media. The aim of many applications is the representation and design of our living space, such as the evaluation of (scarce) resources on our earth, or the development and planning of our environment and infrastructure.

In the basic modules, knowledge of engineering mathematics, experimental physics, adjustment calculation as well as geodesy and geographic information is imparted. The subsequent specialist course also deals, among other things, with the mathematical evaluation of satellite missions to determine the gravity field of the earth, photogrammetric measurement and evaluation methods or design aspects in urban planning.

In addition to the courses, practical parts in the form of exercises and measurement internships are important components of the course.
